and will allow you to use a SCSI device driver instead of a native
ATAPI driver.
This is useful if you have an ATAPI device for which no native
driver has been written (for example, an ATAPI PD-CD drive);
you can then use this emulation together with an appropriate SCSI
device driver. In order to do this, say Y here and to "SCSI support"
and "SCSI generic support", below. You must then provide the kernel
command line "hdx=ide-scsi" (try "man bootparam" or see the
documentation of your boot loader (lilo or loadlin) about how to
pass options to the kernel at boot time) for devices if you want the
native EIDE sub-drivers to skip over the native support, so that
this SCSI emulation can be used instead.
Note that this option does NOT allow you to attach SCSI devices to a
box that doesn't have a SCSI host adapter installed.
If both this SCSI emulation and native ATAPI support are compiled
into the kernel, the native support will be used.
